Spirelli Technique with Stampin’ Up! Supplies

Standard

Phew!    I just got in last night from the annual Stampin’ Up! Convention and have so much to share and so many ideas swirling around this head.  Unfortunately, I also have a bit of laundry and grocery shopping to do.   AND—I have no idea how this happened but–My Stamp Lab is a  disaster!!   I think perhaps, just perhaps, I wasn’t as organized as I thought before I left and, well, creativity is messy—-and my stamp lab can prove it!

Today, I have a picture to share with you featuring  the Spirelli technique, which is something I did with my clubs last month.   We didn’t do this exact  card but once you know the technique, you can Spirelli anthing!!!

Tips:

  • You can use either scallops or star bursts to do this technique.
  • I love our linen thread but you can also use baker’s twine, embroidery thread, crochet thread, yarn, —anything, really!
  • You can alter the size of the opening in the middle depending on how many notches you choose to skip.  Your first pass of the thread/twine, will determine the opening all the way around.

I actually think I might frame it.  You, too, can make your own home decor by changing out the colors and focal point to match your house.  Give it a try!  This actually doesn’t match my house at all but I feel like it is frame-worthy.

Go forth and Spirelli something today!  Send me a photo.  Would love to see what you create.   Just remember to clean your “lab” afterwards!!
